Helicopter Carrying Accident Victims Falls From The Sky, Crashes Onto The Highway
The moment a Brazilian police helicopter dropped out of the sky onto an urban thoroughfare was captured on video.
The helicopter crashed on Monday, Jan. 8, while carrying an accident victim.
FMTBLOG gathered that, six people were on board the plane, including a doctor and a nurse, but no one was hurt.
In a testament according to PRF Commander Aurélio Leal, who was on board, the helicopter suffered rotor failure, prompting the pilot to make the scary move.
Despite the fortunate ending, when the chopper landed, the force of the vortex blew tiles off the roofs of surrounding buildings.
“When it went up, the tiles fell inside the house,” said neighbourhood resident Elisa Loures.
“To avoid hurting my son, I jumped on top of him.”When the helicopter took off, it made an unusual noise, and everything began to tumble.”
According to footage from a vehicle in front of the collision, the helicopter also narrowly missed hitting a car.
“A real scare, huh?” remarked motorist Vitor Fabiano, who narrowly averted a devastating catastrophe.
“Right there in front of me.” In a couple of seconds, I could have been beneath it.”It was indeed by God’s grace.”
Brazil’s aircraft accident investigation agency was looking into the incident.
“Federal Highway Police aircraft undergo a rigorous process of acquisition, storage, and maintenance and operate with crew members who are also rigorously selected, trained, and checked,” the Public Relations Foundation (PRF) stated in a press release.
